  Rajasthan Royals innings (20 overs maximum) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal Ankit Sharma c Smith b Ashwin 30 33 27 4 1 111.11
7.5 caught at long-on! Ankit slogged an offbreak from outside off stump and for the awkward way he made contact he hit it pretty far, Dwayne Smith was right on the edge of the boundary when he took the catch 60/1
View dismissal SR Watson* b Sharma 51 55 36 3 4 141.66
12.4 middle stump has taken a beating! Mohit bowled it full and straight, Watson aimed the slog at the midwicket boundary and missed, that's that. The ball kept a bit low 99/3
View dismissal AM Rahane run out (†Dhoni/McCullum) 4 11 7 0 0 57.14
10.4 from Jadeja, Rahane's been run out! He pushed it off the front foot towards cover and ran. There was no single there but Watson had taken a few steps out of his crease and was late in sending Rahane back. By the time he had turned, Rahane had no chance. McCullum had swooped on the ball and under-armed it back to Dhoni 86/2
View dismissal KK Nair b Badree 8 21 11 1 0 72.72
14.6 bowled him! Badree ends his spell with a wicket but Rajasthan won't mind that at all. Nair went back to cut one that was a bit too full and got a bottom edge onto off stump. That will bring in Smith, Faulkner and the rest ... 114/4
View dismissal STR Binny c du Plessis b Jadeja 22 27 17 0 2 129.41
18.3 caught at long-on, the Royal slump continues. Binny simply hit it straight to du Plessis with the bottom of his bat. All very average from Rajasthan 137/7
View dismissal SPD Smith b Sharma 9 7 8 1 0 112.50
17.2 what a crazy shot. Smith began to play the scoop, but then saw that the ball was full and straight, and then tried to play some sort of a ramp. He ended up playing nothing and losing leg stump 133/5
View dismissal JP Faulkner b Jadeja 1 5 4 0 0 25.00
18.1 bowled him! Faulkner's been done by the quicker, skiddy ball that goes straight on. Faulkner tries to work the ball through square leg but misses, the ball goes off the pad and knocks back leg stump 136/6
DH Yagnik not out 4 9 6 0 0 66.66
View dismissal R Bhatia c Smith b Sharma 7 5 4 1 0 175.00
19.4 caught at long off! Bhatia is done by the slower one, he throws his bat at a wider ball outside off and slices it high in the air, Smith runs in from the deep and catches it 147/8

View dismissal DR Smith c †Yagnik b Cooper 44 43 35 5 2 125.71
9.6 caught behind! Cooper strikes with the slower ball that was pitched short of a length! Smith was on the pull way too early and the top edge lobbed tamely to the keeper. Yagnik ran forward to take it 76/3
View dismissal BB McCullum c Nair b Ankit Sharma 6 8 3 0 1 200.00
2.1 a superb catch! McCullum hit that slog sweep hard, sending the ball flat and fast towards square leg where Karun Nair caught it at head height. The ball went straight to him but it was travelling 20/1
View dismissal SK Raina c Bhatia b Ankit Sharma 2 8 3 0 0 66.66
4.2 that's a poor ball but Raina's swept it straight to short fine leg! Ankit pitched on leg from round the wicket and it was an ordinary delivery. Raina moved across his stumps, got down on one knee and swept. He didn't hit it high enough but a couple of feet either side of the fielder at short fine and it would have been four. However, the ball went straight to Bhatia, who took a low catch 41/2
View dismissal F du Plessis b Faulkner 38 64 39 2 0 97.43
17.3 in the blockhole, bowled him! Full and straight, and fast too. Faf was outside leg, making room to hit through the off side. He missed and the ball crashed into the base of middle sump 121/5
View dismissal R Ashwin b Bhatia 14 24 16 1 0 87.50
14.5 bowled him with an uber slow ball, Ashwin made room outside leg and slogged across the line, he was through the shot too early and leg stump took a hit 105/4
